The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the tennis season, will begin on February 8, 2021 and there is great anticipation for this sporting event. Before taking part in this tournament, tennis players will have to follow a strict quarantine and in recent days updates have also arrived on this: the city of Adelaide will host at least 50 players and staff during the quarantine period imposed by the Government before the Melbourne tournament and Tennis Australia has obtained, on the basis of an agreement with the South Australian government, that Adelaide will host the big names in men's and women's world tennis.
Also in Adelaide will be held on 29 and 30 January a performance with the three best tennis players of the ATP and WTA circuits but before this performance these athletes will have to overcome the preventive isolation period with force.
No quarantine issues for Ashleigh Barty who is already Australian, resides there and is already there. These will be protagonists in this exhibition, then Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Thiem will participate in the ATP Cup and then they will aim to win the first Grand Slam of the year where each of them starts with great ambitions.
Roger Federer has often been called the greatest tennis player of all time, by both fans and experts. And now, Juan Carlos Ferrero has opened up on his admiration for Federer too; calling him the 'best player in history', Ferrero said the Swiss made him feel like a lesser player when they faced each other.
Ferrero talks about the Big 3
"They (Big 3) are definitely the top 3 players in history," Juan Carlos Ferrero said. "Novak Djokovic is the most compact of the three, physically suffering little disability. He is a very good athlete with height, weight and great flexibility.
He also plays well on all surfaces. (He) is one of the few players who put Rafael Nadal's head in trouble," he added. Ferrero further said that his countryman and friend Rafael Nadal is head and shoulders above most players when it comes to the mental part of the game.
"Rafael Nadal is also physically good to do his best and mentally, the best of the three," Ferrero added. The trio of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have dominated the tennis tour for the past decade and a half, winning a combined 57 Grand Slam titles between them. They have also won the last 13 Major titles in grand fashion, suggesting that they aren't going away any time soon.
